Take a walk through the history of Bath

Bath, Somerset

Soak up the best view over Bath on the most downloaded National Trust walk in Britain.

Fashionable Bathonians have been ‘taking the air’ in Bath’s tranquil surroundings since Georgian times. 

Today you can follow in the footsteps of the Georgians through grand promenades, public gardens, and cobbled passageways before heading to Bath Skyline. There you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the city. 

Take in the vistas that revived the spirits of Jane Austen and her companions. The six mile route takes you through wide open fields, hidden valleys and magical woods. Along the way you can discover hidden gems such as an Iron-age hill fort and 18th century follies.
